The British Dyslexia Association (BDA) is a national charity acting as co-ordinator for local associations. Established in 1972, the BDA campaigns for early recognition and appropriate support for dyslexics. It strives to provide support and information to all concerned with dyslexia, children, adults, their parents and families as well as professionals in education, health and employment.
The BDA believes that dyslexia should be seen as a combination of abilities and difficulties. Early intervention, suitable teaching methods and helpful learning skills can significantly reduce the difficulties. Early recognition of a dyslexic way of thinking can help to ensure no loss of self-esteem and subsequent de-motivation.
The BDA is one of the worlds leading organisations providing support for dyslexic people and is one of the biggest contributors to the European scene.
